Me and Michelle have decided not to move out for several reasons...

So it would have been rude not to do a bit of shopping with 'MIGs Stainless Man Miles'...

The stainless items are:

- SFi Box cover
- PAS Bottle cover
- Brake Fluid Res cover
- Radiator & Fan Top cover
- Battery cover (not shown)

Here are some pics... Have a few more bits on order, and just look for more ideas...

Hope you like, comments welcome as always














Will get more and better pics tomorrow in the sunshine :)

Always nice to see more shiney stuff. How come the PAS cover is square tho? :confused:
Olly, you really want some electric blue 10mm silicone plug leads in there matey, would set that engine bay off nicely. ;)

Where can I get me some of them from?

The PAS cover is square because its easier for the guy to make, it swivels too - so tomorrow I will actually line it up with the battery lmao

Looks ACE :D

I also think the power steering one looks odd as its a round bottle but with a square cover.

Sorry to hear about you not moving house anymore :( I guess you have your reasons though.

Dude, that bay gets shinier every week! lmao

looks really good but Mind if I make a couple of suggestions?

I think the SFi box would look better with something 'written' (ie: etched or whatever) on it. Seems a bit plain to me.

Plus what everyone said about the washer/header bottles and leads.

But I think these battery covers look nicer IMO:


Might be a bit overkill with a chrome battery cover too (also could suffer from the same problem as SFi box?)? I dunno, just my 2p's worth if any of it makes sense!?!

I like that there, i take it they call em a battery bag or something:confused:

How much are they?

The only thing i dont like about stainless steel is the large bits that people have done i.e. SFI cover, battery cover tend to be duller than any bits you have chrome plated, i noticed that on Nobbies engine bay, he had the same as Olly.

Quite fancy a carbon SFI cover or similer.

Phil, u aint the only one that loves that colour:D

thanks Johnny... I am soon to get some bits etched into the SFi and battery cover...

i might "copy" nobbie - and have a little "16v" in the corner of the SFi cover, and a Vauxhall Griffin on the battery cover...

Nick - once you've found out how much the battery bags are, you will no longer want one!

Hence why I went for the stainless option!

and plus - i like shine :)

Cool, you thought about the etching too? Great minds think alike :D

How much are those battery bags?
